Background: Noted author Neil Gaiman hatched a sort of pro-literacy/pro-literature movement for Halloween which has come to be known as ‘All Hallow’s Read’. Put simply: you should, asserts Gaiman, give scary books out for Halloween alongside candy, which as he notes, is also very important.
All well and good.
But why does the promotional video for ‘All Hallow’s Read’ feature Zombie-Living violence and strife?
The Zombie Rights Campaign has serious concerns, Mr. Gaiman. Are Zombies welcome to participate in this holiday reading tradition-in-the-making, as well as the Living? Or, as your video unfortunately seems to suggest, is ‘All Hallow’s Read’ one part literary entertainment, one part Anti-Zombie mayhem?
Can’t we enjoy a few books without the divisive rhetoric? Or in this case, divisive Youtube video?
The last thing this country needs is a new Anti-Zombie tradition.
We eagerly await a response and clarification.
